Holiday Recipe Roundup!

I remember when I was a little girl, the holidays seem to take forever to get here. I would wake up each day and it seemed to just drag on. I would watch movies, drink hot chocolate and popcorn, we would do all of the usual holiday festivities. It was a really good time.

Nowadays, I still do most of that but now it seems like the holidays just creep up out of nowhere. Like there’s not much of a break between summer and Christmas. I guess my inner child would be excited.

While I am totally behind on the holiday cooking and baking this year, I thought I would roundup some recipes that are favorites around this time and maybe they’ll give you some inspiration!

Happy halloween!

I know I should be posting about how to make homemade candy, or what to do with leftover candy but well… I’m not.

I guess I haven’t gotten into the halloween spirit yet.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Scones

Because we really need another pumpkin recipe.

Honestly, pinterest, tumblr, twitter, foodgawker, every food site has been bombarding me with pumpkin recipes! Pumpkin this pumpkin that. It’s almost exhausting.

Which recipe do you choose? There’s at least 10 recipes for the same thing, so which is the best?

Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt

Pumpkin season is just great! My mother made pumpkin mac and cheese (post coming soon) and pumpkin frozen yogurt! Both are absolutely amazing so I had to let her let me post the recipes for you guys.

Pumpkin Pancakes
This semester I had an early class at 7:30 two days a week. Surprisingly I preferred those days over the ones where my classes started at 10:30. I went to class half asleep but when it was over with I was done with the day. The whole rest of my day was free!
